At DeClerk LP Gas, your safety is our priority. Listed below are winter weather safety tips. If you ever have any questions, please call us!  870-892-5273

Always Maintain an Adequate Supply of Propane in Your Tank

A severe winter storm can hinder additional propane delivers. Call us before the storm hits.

Stay In Regular Contact With Us

When you stay in regular contact with DeClerk LP Gas, we will be able to arrange a refill long before you run out of propane.

Contact Us IMMEDIATELY if You Run Out of Propane

One of our qualified service technicians MUST check your system for leaks before turning gas back on.

Use Energy Wisely

Use energy conservatively by setting your programmable thermostat to as low as comfortable. Close off any rooms that don’t need to be heated.

Keep the Path to Your Propane Tank Clear

A clear path helps our drivers deliver your gas safely. Clear snow and ice from around your tank, regulators vents, piping, tubing and valves. Use a broom instead of a shovel to prevent damage to your propane system components.

Allow Your Appliances to Vent Properly

If it is safe to do so, clear snow and ice away from outdoor vents, chimneys, and lues to prevent blocking of ventilation.

If You Smell Gas, Follow These Steps

Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open flames. Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones, or cellphones. Get everyone away from the home or area where you suspect gas is leaking. If safe to do so, close or shut off the main gas supply valve by turning it to the right (clockwise). Call us immediately from your safe place to report the leak. If we cannot be reached, call 911. Do not return to the area until an emergency responder or a qualified technician from DeClerk LP Gas gives the OK.

Never Use a Stove or Bring Your Gas Grill Indoors for Space Heating, Even During a Power Outage

Only use appliances indoors that are designed and approved for that purpose. Never store, place, or use a propane cylinder indoors or in enclosed areas. Never use outdoor propane-powered appliances indoors or in enclosed areas. Without proper ventilation, deadly carbon monoxide (CO) fumes produced can build up.

Operate Portable Generators With Caution

Never use a portable generator (gasoline, diesel, or propane) indoors or in enclosed areas. Doing so can result in carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning or death.
